BUDDING singers, bands and buskers could have their very own album recorded in front of the public at a prime city centre spot – City Buzz can exclusively reveal.

A new competition called Trinity Sessions hopes to find some of the city’s best musical talent, with the winner bagging the top prize of recording live at a pop-up studio underneath the impressive glass atrium at Trinity Leeds.

The hopefuls will first battle it out in live performances at Trinity Kitchen.

The winner will also get to appear as a warm-up act at this year’s Live at Leeds festival, which is pretty cool.

We’ve been flying the flag for the city’s busking and music scene for a while now and are keen to see what new gems this competition could bring into the mix.

Leeds’ busking scene has been home to some up-and-coming stars, such as Hannah Trigwell who has over 30million hits on YouTube.

So we’re sure there are more stars lurking out there waiting for their time to shine.

The judging panel includes experts from local radio, music colleges and even a talent spotter from Live at Leeds, so it’s not going to be a walk in the park for those taking part.

Trinity Sessions is all for a good cause too, with money raised going to Martin House Children’s Hospice.

Hopefully it will also result in some good exposure for a band or musician that might have struggled to find it in the past.

Good luck to any of you who fancy going for it.

Entries open on Monday, March 9.
